How to cut down a DW Fibur barrel without going full FUBAR?

Just wondering if someone can give some tips on how to cut down a carbon fiber 16” DW Fibur barrel down to 13”-14” without messing it up? What’s the proper way to refinish it so it looks as close to factory as possible?

Is it too much trouble?

Thanks in advance.

Someone posted about this before. Something about the company saying cut and wet sand. I'm interested, so I'm commenting and subscribing.

Do not breath the dust!
When I was cutting my havoc barrels I used a diamond wheel on a Dremel extension under water. It might be extreme but it works. You will then need to seal up the end you want to keep with some epoxy

If you have access to a tile saw and are not worried about excess waste due to kerf width. I'd wrap with masking tape, mark cut line and slowly cut with a tile wet saw. When done sand and seal the end with CA (Cyanoacrylate) glue.

Doesn’t seem that hard really. Sometimes in life you just have to say what the *uck right?

Hell I'd cut it with my chop saw with a diamond blade, sand and seal (5 minutes top). It would take the longest to change my blade in the shop. Most likely would work out but the experts do say avoid getting it too hot (hence wet tile saw suggestion). Using a dust mask would be smart but I'd most likely just hold my breath.
